Love in in the air!

Love is in the air...
Everywhere I look around...
Love is in the air...
Every sight and every sound...


Oh sorry, I didn't hear you come in. *grins* Sorry that I have been away so long. I am not really away, just very busy with many projects. All fun things. I am also always very busy the week before my quilt group comes each month. Tonight is the night and they will be showing their progress with the first block of our theme quilt Leanne's House. I have the block done but thought it would be fun to wait and show it to you along with the others. Now all I have to do is turn on my memory switch and take photos. I am really forgetful lately. It can be dangerous when you even forgot to turn the fire off of the gas under you dinner pan. *sigh*

But anyway, I am really off the subject now...I was working on the second block this past week and thought I would share a little glimpse. As you can see love is in the air. Just perfect with Valentine's Day just around the corner. Why love is in found in my sack of potatoes. *wink* I pulled this potato out of the bag to make dinner the day I finished sewing love so needless to say I did not have the heart to peel it. Forgive the pun.

So how is your Wednesday?

Mooie puntjes Heidi! Jammer dat je de aardappel niet bewaard hebt tot de 14de :)

Tot vanavond

I don't think I'd have been able to bring myself to eat it either!

I love your "love" quilt! The colors are gorgeous and so are those hearts! Does your potato heart belong to Mr. Potato Head? (Sorry for the bad joke, but I couldn't resist!) Have a great time with your quilt group!

Since I love heart shaped items, I would be up in the air with delight if I found a potato that looked like yours!!

Heidi,
the potato is cute. I think I would have to place a ribbon and a hangar onto it and make it an ornament; and your heart blocks and love stitchery turned out very nice.

Heidi, what a great potato find!

Your quilt looks lovely, i hope you enjoy your quilt group today.

Thank you for your lovely comments on the header on my blog, it was really easy to create the mosaic on Picasa (must be easy if i can figure it out!!)

The timing is wonderful on finding a heart potato. I wouldn't be able to peel it either!

That potato is too cute. I love your heart stitching. Very pretty.

I got to Syracuse 20 minutes early.
I had a seat to myself. It was a good trip.
